What Have We Been Learning?
During the Spring Term we have been developing our use of vocabulary through the exploration of a range of science investigations. We have recently explored the story of 'The Elves and the Shoemaker' and enjoyed using drama to help us to create other stories about the Elves.
In phonics we have spent time consolidating our phase 3 phonemes j, v, w, x, y, z, xx, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er. We are now moving onto learning about consonant blends at the beginning and end of words (phase 4).
In maths, we have been measuring time and using the language associated time. We have looked briefly at how O'Clock and half past times are displayed on analogue and digital clocks.
